Nordson Corp. recently announced that Godfrey M. Sandham has become vice president and general manager of EDI. Gary Edwards, former CEO of EDI, will work with Sandham to effect a smooth transition before leaving EDI in December to pursue other opportunities.  

“Godfrey brings extensive multinational experience in developing, merging, and integrating businesses, and has a strong record of revenue and profit growth,” said Peter G. Lambert, Nordson’s senior vice president for adhesive dispensing systems. “EDI already enjoys a well-established worldwide reputation for precision engineering, quality, and customer service, and under Godfrey’s leadership it promises to enter an exciting new era of even greater growth and innovation.”    

Sandham joined Nordson EFD in 1998. He previously served as president of EFD International Inc.; managing director of EFD operations in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa; director of Nordson Germany; and a member of Nordson EFD LLC’s executive staff.
